Created by Matt Miller between 2014-2015, ‘Forever’ showed Dr. Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd), an immortal being, searching for a way to become mortal again for 22 episodes. Along the way, the character worked with NYPD as a medical examiner and built a relationship with Detective Jo Martinez (Alana de la Garza). But the show ended abruptly after one season, leaving fans with unanswered questions. So, let’s take a look at what’s in store for a possible season 2!
Why Was The Show Canceled?
‘Forever’ kicked off with a preview on September 22, 2014, and fully started the next day. During its run, the show got mixed reactions. While it was popular in some online polls and in countries like France and Spain, TV critics in the US were split, some finding it too similar to other crime dramas.
ABC initially ordered a full season but eventually canceled ‘Forever’ after the first season finale, pointing to low ratings as the reason, although there were thoughts that later viewers, like DVR watchers, weren’t fully considered.
Where Did It All End?
‘Forever’ centered around Dr. Henry Morgan’s immortality and ended without resolving many plot points. The last episode brought some twists as the story combined present-day events with flashbacks to London in 1945. A murder over a mysterious dagger and Henry’s immortality were about to be exposed in the season finale. Fans are still waiting to see what will happen next.
Will The Show Ever Return?
It’s been years since ‘Forever’ was canceled in 2015, and there hasn’t been any official word on a second season. Fans showed their disappointment online, hoping for the show’s return by starting campaigns. The creator, Matt Miller, has expressed interest in bringing the show back but hasn’t announced any plans. There are rumors of a possible return in 2024, but nothing confirmed.
What Were The Plans For Season 2?
In 2015, Matt Miller shared some potential ideas for season 2 on X. He suggested that Henry would fail to achieve death and mentioned the possibility of revealing his other children. The writer also said that Jo’s wish to go to Paris with the immortal protagonist would come true in season 2 if he could continue.
